What: Houston Symphony Children’s Fashion Show and Luncheon
Where: River Oaks Country Club
PC Moment: Despite the presence of Dorothy, the Tin Man et al of The Wizard of Oz, it was the youngsters — from toddlers to teens — that stole the show as they walked “the yellow brick road” catwalk in fashions from Macy’s. Even Dorothy’s ruby red slippers couldn’t compete with runway adorables. The fete, which raised $70,000 for the symphony’s outreach and community programming, continued with the Symphony’s Instrument Petting Zoo, crafts, a photo booth and wizardly entertainment. Applause, applause for chair Saula Centa Valente, who orchestrated the event for more than 270 guests.
